  1. Hi all, 


    I would love to undertake real training for cooking and whilst I appreciate that the bulk of training is feedback, it would be great if anyone had any ideas for a DIY, at-home, Grand Diplome. I know that’s it’s a big ask but any thoughts, reading materials, discovered course structures would be spiffing.


    Its probably worth mentioning that that this is pure hobby and not to enter into the professional world.

    We've made one trip to England and fell in love.  That trip was London, Cotswolds and a little south and west.  Our next planned trip (which was cancelled due to my mother's ill health) was to be to points north - York, the Dales, Hadrian's wall, the Lake District - as much as we could fit in to 2 weeks.  We still hope to make the trip and I am looking forward to your posts more than I already was.  Any surroundings that you can sneak into the edges of your food pictures would be welcomed by me!  And once you are comfortable, a food blog would make me a happy girl!

    I walked Hadrians Wall some years ago. Very envious that you will be discovering it in the near future!

    thanks for the book recommendation 


    will likely download and check it out over the weekend 


    the author doesn't seem to be a professional cook / bartender but is this MIT engineering graduate with both BS and MS degrees 


    I wonder if he learned drinking in college after studying like 10-12 hour a day or something and needed to relax 

    I would be interested to hear your thoughts - I loved the book.


    Thanks for the warm welcome, all.

  3. Hi all,


    Not quite a long time lurker but I have been looking on and off the forum for a few years before this decision to register and [hopefully] get involved. I originally heard of the forum through a book - Craft Cocktails at Home - which was an excellent read.


    There are so many potential topics here that I don’t quite know where to start: I’m part-time home brewer, main cook and baker-in-chief (when I find time). Particularly interested in scientific tidbits but also following along with what people are making; ive noted a lot of soups etc for breakfast?! 


    Looking forward to to getting more involved.
